I have taken 4 Barrons tests, and I have gotten about 30-ish. I usually miss about 9-10, and skip 9-10 as well. I am simply not improving.Everyone seems to get above a 750 on the real thing, and I am panicing that I won't. What should I do? And yes, I know that Barrons is much harder than the real thing, but still, 32 does not equal a 800.

Also, the same thing is happening with REA Chemistry. I am getting in the 600s. How accurate is that (is it any harder than the real thing)?

Use Princeton Review for Math and Kaplan's and Princeton (PR is a easier than the real thing) for chem. I was getting 35's or something on the Barron's Math IIC, then grabbed the real SAT IIs and got one question wrong. Barron's is ridiculous; way too hard and asking things that aren't gonna be on it. I got an 800 very easily on the real test. Very very easily, even though i was getting 30-35 on Barron's. Barron's is ridiculous.

Just keep trying on it and don't worry. Keep studying. If you can ace Barron's, you'll obviously have no trouble at all with the real SAT II.
